Modern Technology for Our Teacher

Help me give my students an ability to keep up with modern technology, by having a teacher with a modern device that can interact and manage our classroom technology.

My Students

The students in our classroom are happy and excited to be in their kindergarten class. It is a big step and for some the first step into their elementary education! We have a wonderful and happy multicultural community, and I would love to provide our students with early-education-specialized classroom supplies within all areas of need. Our city/district is considered large for the area, and I have the privilege of working at a beautiful school site that is filled with amazing students, teachers, and staff.

My Project

By having a modern laptop, I as a teacher will be able to manage my students devices, and classroom technology. Our district is constantly fixing my older computer, my laptop is on its third battery and its second hard drive with me. We also have issues carrying it from place to place since the laptop is very heavy, and do not have current ports such as a HDMI port or bluetooth. Every day there is a constant need for teacher like myself to be able to meet and advance technologically within the classroom and outside of it. I would love to be able to utilize bluetooth technology, better monitor my students tablet and computer use.

With a modern laptop I can also bring to life many programs for interactive class time such as Google Earth, GoNoodle, and more.

I have been unable to access many Math and Science interactives because the computer can not manage the complex graphics or multiple applications needed for use. Being able to keep up with modern technology as a teacher is becoming more important everyday and the simple purchase of this laptop would do wonders for our classroom and future students that I teach.
